Our CTO Max Madl held his first workshop at Drupal Europe last week. The main goal of this hands-on session was to show the audience what it means to update a Drupal project
b.) with helping tools & services
c.) fully automated.
This post provides you the gateways to the session slides "Drupal Europe 2018: Hackers automate but the Drupal community still downloads modules from drupal.org" and the topics update automation and Auto Update Initiative in Drupal.
I’ve joined the Drupal mentoring team for the first time last week at Drupal Europe.
In this post, I’ll share how and why this contribution changed the way I think about Drupal events and the Drupal Community.
Automatic updates have been discussed since years already. The pro and con of letting Drupal update itself are discussed in different Drupal.org issues queues. It was not a big surprise that Dries mentioned automatic Drupal core updates as part of the strategic roadmap of Drupal in his Driesnote at DrupalCon Vienna 2017.
With the end of September, DrupalCon Vienna is also coming closer and we can't wait to welcome you to our booth #S08. As a Silver sponsor of the event, we'll have the chance to present continuous update management to you on site. But - we also can't wait to learn a lot from other agencies and attendees! At DrupalCon there's always a chance to learn something new, be it a whole new approach or a connecting piece of unidentified issues - by asking but most of all by listening.
Dublin, 27. Sept. 2016. “Describe the DrupalCon in just one word!” - “EXCITING!”
First of all, I want to thank everyone who made my first DrupalCon this awesome and extra special!
Our whole team enjoyed a week full of new experiences, great sessions and - of course - old and new friends! The place, Dublin, was perfect to “seal” a new friendship or strengthen an old one with a good morning coffee (thanks to Commerce Guys by actualys and Mailchimp, the two coffee break sponsors!) or a good cold Guinness (I tried to remember the bar names, but actually I guess I sealed a lot of new friendships..).
Only 20 days are left until we head to Dublin to join the DrupalCon 2016! It’s the first time that we, the Drupal agency team from Bright Solutions (which is the "birthplace" of Drop Guard), arrive at a Con only with our Drop Guard team, so we can focus on our most famous contribution to the Community: our update management service tool “Drop Guard”.
Yes, we’d be happy to show people the great values which Drop Guard provides - but most of all we look forward to personal and honest conversations to progress in our work and as part of the Community!
Drop Guard team didn't make it to DC North America this year, but we've spent quite a time talking to our colleagues there, interacting with people via Twitter and Facebook, and obviously - enjoying the sessions as soon as they're available for the online viewing.
We are really excited about the number of the highest quality sessions on various topics, and to be honest we recommend to watch all of them (although be aware of the time you need to complete the whole list).
However, for those interested in all things security, support and maintenance related, and not having too much time to enjoy the full playlist, we've hand-picked a limited amount of videos which we found most insightful and would recommend to the Drop Guard blog readers.
This Drupalcon in Barcelona was really special for us because we had so many touching points with the community and other businesses in the Drupal ecosystem. This Drupalcon really helped us to increase our Drupal8 knowledge but also our whole business. In this blog post I want to share how the community helped us to win more ideas to improve our business in the near future.
After a month of Drop Guard's closed beta we aggregated the most important business benefits from our beta testers. We want to share those benefits with you:
